STAN COLLYMORE: I hope I’m wrong, but Spurs’ fizz could fizzle out in a year or two

Date Posted,April 29, 2017

There are plenty going overboard about Tottenham right now.

And, as they head into the North London derby with Arsenal today, Spurs seem to be everyone’s darlings.

I can see why because they tick a lot of boxes.

They play speedy, attractive football. Exciting young players Harry Kane and Dele Alli are capturing the imagination. And they are led by a go-ahead, ambitious manager who likes his football fast and furious.

But beneath all the gushing praise there is an underlying danger that this is a story that could fizzle out in the next couple of years.

Promise and potential is all well and good, but if it doesn’t materialise into silverware the bright new future that beckons for Spurs and manager Mauricio Pochettino could easily be snuffed out.
